According to reports, Chuba Akpom is set to go out on loan to Ipswich Town for six months.

The forward, who is currently out after injuring his back, could join the Championship club for the remainder for the season in order to get some experience.

Akpom is no stranger to a loan move. Previously, he’s spent time at Brentford, Coventry City, Nottingham Forest and, last season, Hull City. Therefore, it’s not really that outlandish to suspect that we would loan him out again.

Although the 21-year-old had a decent pre-season, he still hasn’t been able to force himself into the first team, which is understandable considering the calibre of player in front of him in the pecking order.

A loan move could help him, if he gets game time, but how would this one with Ipswich be any different to his previous loan spells? Would it actually help him?

We’ll have to see.
